It is the now the morning after and I am waking up to Hibs being CIS Cup Winners after a great day at Hampden yesterady and a stunning 5-1 final score. Over 30,000 Hibs fans went through and survived a snow blizzard and Majorettes early on to see a fantastic game and result!! I especially liked the crowd singalongs to the Proclaimers (obviously!!), the Monkeys, U2, Snow Patrol and even the Frattellis (I think that Chelsea Dagger will become a new Hibs Anthem in memory of the day!)!!
It was an unforgettable day!!! A full Report on the game can be accessed through this link Hibs Vs Kilmarnock
Dad and I got back at 9pm and I am having a recovery day today before returning to London in time for the Council Assembly on Wednesday.
Anyway below are some pictures of the great day:
Just reflecting with dad the fact that we have been at the 3 Hibs Cup victories in my lifetime. Perhaps a 4th is beckoning in May??? Below a few memories of the previous 2 Cup Wins.
